    Are we making progress with building governance into the post- 2015 framework?

    Momentum is building for governance and accountability issues to have a greater profile in the post 2015 framework, and there is a growing recognition that we cannot afford to ignore governance even if it is politically challenging to incorporate.

    This briefing by Leni Wild and Gina Bergh, researchers at the Overseas Development Institute, provides an assessment of some of the main proposals on the table that have been gaining traction in the debate, as well as some potential risks in the direction that these debates are heading.

    The research finds that there is a need for greater reflection on some of the developmental functions of governance, aside from particular forms of governance or institutions. Based on this assessment we propose ideas on which aspects of governance could usefully be built into post 2015 goals.

    As the UN and partners host their final meeting within the global consultation on governance and post 2015 goals this week, we argue that the approach taken in this area needs to be ambitious. But it must also leave behind the policy prescriptions and blueprints of the past. We need to recast the conversation by opening it up to new actors and debates, and thinking creatively about how to develop targets and indicators.

    Global Day of Citizen Action


    On 16 May 2015, people around the world will be sharing their views on `civic space’ - the freedoms of expression, association and assembly.


    The Global Day of Citizen Action engages ordinary citizens by asking them whether they feel free to speak out, organise and take action. In doing so, we get to engage with citizens in an easy way that allows them to give their opinion on `civic space’ and allows civil society organisations like yourself to create awareness about citizen’s rights. It also helps us understand the extent to which civic space is free or restricted in different parts of the world.
